Above all, we want the whole experience to be an enjoyable one - that's how we get the best pictures.
Our process has been created to ensure that the pressure on the day is kept to a minimum, and that the standard of the end product is consistently brilliant.
We provide a 'Photography Style' pdf for discussion in a Zoom call prior to the photoshoot. The Zoom call is an opportunity to express preferences and record the detail of any particular images that might be specifically required to ensure that they are not missed on the day.
This is also an excellent opportunity to discuss what changes of clothing should be brought to the shoot and any other style matters that may be of concern.
It is important that we understand what existing assets we have to work with for two reasons.
Firstly these may impact on the nature of the photographs we take at the photoshoot. Secondly, if there is a shortfall in what is ideally required, then everyone is aware at an early stage which will hopefully help avoid a delay in the supply of the final assets.
It would seem that everyone expects to really hate having their photograph taken.
However, a Rushfirth Creative shoot is designed to be a relaxed - even fun - experience. To-date everyone who has attended one of our sessions has been surprised at just how much they have enjoyed the occasion. In fact the challenge has been in getting them to leave!
Is it outside the average person’s comfort zone?
Oh yes ... at the beginning.
But we take A LOT of photographs! The beauty of having a full half hour of photography time is that people have time to get comfortable and relax - and that’s where the best images lie. Many people have arrived as clients and left as friends ...
That’s the experience we are always aiming for.
A pdf contact sheet of unprocessed images is supplied shortly after the photoshoot.
This is for review at the Zoom call that will be scheduled for a few days after the photoshoot date. This is the opportunity to discuss preferred shots to narrow down the selection of the final headshot and social media banner image.
Plus access to all additional photographs to be retouched as required (additional charge applies) for use on websites and social media.
The impact personal branding can have
Confidence. And lots of it!
Every single person that has worked with Rushfirth Creative on their personal branding has started out with a dread and even hatred of having their photograph taken, with some declaring they have never once liked a single photo of themselves.
However, every person without exception has actually enjoyed the session with some deciding they may have a new career in modelling and not wanting to leave!
It is the ability to create this enjoyment of the process that creates the basis for some of the fabulous images of the clients. And the fact that they have those images creates a confidence much greater than one might anticipate, making them much more comfortable with their online presence, and being seen as the face of the business.
“Having our personal branding done completed the overall rebrand of our company, helping us look more professional. Myself and Andy are not overly fond of having our photo’s taken but Rushfirth Creative made the entire experience easy going and fun so we actually enjoyed it as well as getting some great photographs individually and together. We were really pleased with the images that we were able to use on our social media platforms and website too. Would highly recommend! Well worth

A professional co-ordinated brand is an essential component in a company's arsenal, and nowhere more-so than online and social media, where the importance of the presence and persona of an individual is heightened. The personal branding assets generated by Rushfirth Creative absolutely set our clients apart from their competition, whatever industry they are working in. They stand-out, and for all the right reasons.
"Over the last 12 months I have laid a lot of new foundations in my business, enabling us to go from strength to strength despite the uncertain economic climate, but having Rushfirth Creative create new personal branding is without doubt the one single thing that has had the greatest positive impact. Customers have actually advised that it was the professionalism that they conveyed that brought them to me rather than the competition, and I wasn't by any means the cheapest option. Well worth spending the money to get this right."

"You know that Rushfirth Creative do something special when you normally hate all photographs of yourself - but you can't resist showing their photos to everyone."
Do you have a member of the team who requires the same social media assets using the same background images, then why not book a double photography session!
